Subject: Good? Bad? Average!
Does anyone ever care about Buster? Not only from this film you get the impression that he is one sort of lonely and at times badly treated character.

Some of the stunts are nice, but compared to his other works, this one ist just a bit too boring and lacks this weirdness in the staging of the stunts and performance; take the scene with the bears for instance.

The stunt on the balloon is great, but there are moments in which Buster struggles a bit to keep the tension and the interest of the viewer.
